Rated 4 out of 5 by thewade Small vs. Medium Boat & Tote
These are great bags and well constructed.
I originally purchased the medium bag to coordinate with my oldest son's basketball team colors. The medium allowed me to tote home school books and all sorts of items I could use to keep me busy while waiting between games. And the medium worked great for that, toting large books.
My youngest son participates at a different school so that means new bag with new colors. I decided to go for the small bag. Its great for holding paper back books, but not large home school books. I mainly use it as a large purse. I do wish I had gotten the medium for large books, cameras (SLR types), water bottles, etc. Either way I'll make it work, or I may wait for a sale, coupons, & some extra $$ and splurge and get a medium bag with blue colors.

This was my first customized boat and tote bag. It came out exactly the way I ordered it and the colors were vivid. I have always appreciated the quality workmanship of LL Bean totes, but this time you went above and beyond your usual quality. It is also great that a tote can be made to my individual specifications. I must also say that the shipping time was excellent considering the weather all over the country, especially on the eastern seaboard and New England. Thanks again for a job well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 Love it!
I have this bag in large, extra long handles, and zip top. It is the perfect weekend bag! Everything I need fits comfortably in this bag, and it fits great on an airplane. I also take it to school (I'm a teacher), and it is fantastic for packing bingers, computers, papers, etc. I would definitely recommend this bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Broadway92 Totes are the Best
I'm in love these tote bags!!!!! They are so durable, and I use them for everything. From gym close, to grocery shopping. I use it also when I go to every year to the Oyster fest, because I come home with a lot of stuff. I have them in all four sizes, with my name on them. I totally recommend to all my friends and to tell the truth, most of them have bought them. LL. Bean is the best company!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PIHPSW Awesome for grocery shopping!
I have one large tote with long handles, one medium zipper tote with long handles and one medium tote with regular handles. I am on here today to purchase another large tote.
I use my totes 3-5 times a week. I primarily use for grocery shopping. I live in California where plastic bags are now outlawed and brown bags are $.10 each. I am always receiving complements on these totes. Baggers love them because they stand and stay open on their own. They make carrying groceries so easy. I find the long handles especially convenient for shopping and carrying more than one bag at a time. I purchased my first one over three years ago and it barely shows any wear. These totes are extremely sturdy and durable. I would highly recommend. They are a great value!

Rated 1 out of 5 by LaurenAK Sizing is completely off!
Just sent out an email to L.L. Bean letting them know I will be returning this item. I ordered the large and what I received was an utter shock. The width of the tote's base was a good 2-3" longer than what was listed and the longest part of the bag measured over 24"! I'm a plus sized girl and the tote still looked ridiculous on me. The tote looks like its well made but there is absolutely no reason to order above the size medium. The sizing on the website is inaccurate. Make sure you research others experiences with the sizing before ordering. I wish I had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hurrel I have multiple of these
These are wonderful. I use them for grocery shopping but also going to other retail stores instead of using their small plastic bags.
I own at least 6 in different sizes and shapes. They are very heavy duty and will carry much more weight than I can even lift.
It never fails: when I go to a grocery store the clerk always asks me where I got the bag; they see lots of bags and they are always impressed with mine from L.L. Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SIMCAM Better than expected
This Tote bag is even better than I expected. I have been using it a lot and am glad I got the zip-top. So good I've ordered another.

We're taking our rabbit on a trip to Miami on 29th of January. I needed a big bag to put his stuff in and the XL boat and tote is the perfect bag for it. I ordered my monogrammed tote on the 21st, January, and the estimated time of delivery is the 29th, the same day we leave for Miami. So i called up customer service about my dilemma. She offered to have the tote expedited for an additional fee, $17 if i'm not mistaken. I declined to pay the additional fee and thought i'll just have to use it on another trip. Then the next day, we received an email saying the tote has been shipped and will be delivered on the 27th....I received my boat and tote today and i can't believe how nice and sturdy it looks. I went to the grocery store today and used my tote as a grocery bag. It was so much easier to carry my grocery home. Thank you so much to the customer service operator who assisted me (Diane, i think) with my purchase and made sure my tote got to me early. Excellent product and outstanding customer service. This is a good start to my new boat and tote collection. Kudos to all LL Bean employees! :)
